Pumpkin Patch Fun

Bubby’s birthday weekend was a smash hit filled with favorite moments to cherish for a lifetime!  Family dinner outing, pumpkin carving, trip to the zoo (where his “helephants” live), and trick or treating!  Watching them pick out and decorate tiny pumpkins at the zoo’s pumpkin patch was one of my favorites!

What is your favorite moment/event from this past Halloween weekend?

Imagine!

Imagine the perfect life!  Imagine growing up with the beauty that is the ocean!  Imagine being my babies! 
This is  the only life these 2 have ever known!  This is their “normal”.  This is paradise!  They think life is a perpetual paradise!  My only hope is that they never know any different.  This picture is their world!  And they are my world!  
All of our lives are filled with beauty!  Enjoy life, where ever you are!  There is beauty tucked in every corner of this world.  Our world is beautiful to us!   Is yours?  
(And as a side note, I took a photo of a beautiful scene BUT my friend Deb from Just Short of Crazy made it amazing for me.)

The Beauty Before and After the Storm

Living on an island is a beautiful thing on many levels!  Some are obvious and some not so much.

We have tropical storms, we have hurricanes (although thankfully I have not had to live through one of those) and you can imagine that this would be part of the “bad stuff”, and in a way you would be right!  However, the beauty that Mother Nature brings in before and after the storm is worth riding them all out!
Last weekend we had a storm!  I stood in awe at its beauty!  This will never get old and it reminds me that in life, sometimes we have to ride out the storms just to enjoy the beauty!  
It’s taken me a long time to realize this!  I hope you always find that the beauty of life is always worth the stormy ride!
